Another Happy Weekend!! Dropped by at a major bookstore in the afternoon and picked up one of the latest leading monthly issue of the Digital Camera Magazine in stores. Two months ago (February), I submitted one of my photos taken in Hong Kong last year for the "Your Mission - Shoot An Amazing City" category released then and it's now being published in the latest April 2012 Issue of Digital Camera Magazine!
"Your Mission" is a monthly photography mission / theme released by the Digital Camera Magazine Editorial Team and the mission announced back in February 2012 - "Shoot an Amazing City" - was to go out there and explore a city with camera in hand. It could be a heavily urbanised metropolitan area like Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, or even a sleepy small town. The key here is to capture candid, naturalistic shots of city people and shooting the architecture around you from a unique perspective. Well, I did it with my photo with a nice caption featured above as well as in the latest April 2012 issue of the magazine!
Our year-round bright and sunny weather will offer one ample creative opportunities though you should not be afraid to get stuck in and experiment. When shooting, try and get a unique, exciting perspective that captures the look, feel and mood of city life. Try attempting subjects that have not been done before, getting multiple shots of the Twin Towers doesn't exactly get you in the running for pole position for this photo challenge. We have to think out of the box. Don't wait for the perfect pose. Just keep shooting! :-)
